28.6 Overrun of Entitlement During Capacity Curtailment
All quantities of gas taken by Buyer in excess of Seller's maximum daily delivery
obligation to Buyer as curtailed pursuant to this Section 28 shall be subject to the
overrun penalties set forth in Section 18 of the General Terms and Conditions of this
FERC Gas Tariff.
(a) In the event that the provisions of Section 28.5 are activated by Seller as a
result of a force majeure condition or an adverse governmental action, a Buyer
receiving priority relief under Section 28.5 pursuant to such activation shall
pay compensation, calculated in accordance with Section 28.7(c) below, to other
Buyers that experienced greater curtailment as a consequence.
(b) Within thirty days after the end of a month in which Seller has granted priority
relief, Seller shall notify each Buyer that experienced greater curtailment
("Excess Curtailed Buyer") as to the quantity of capacity curtailments that such
Excess Curtailed Buyer would not have experienced but for the grant of relief
(the "Excess Curtailment Quantity"), and shall notify each Buyer that experienced
lesser curtailment as to the additional capacity that such Buyer was allocated
due to the grant of relief. Seller shall notify all Buyers whose allocations
were affected by such relief of the pro rata allocation of the aggregate Excess
Curtailment Quantity experienced by all Excess Curtailed Buyers, showing the
quantity of capacity to be used for the purpose of determining the amount of
compensation owed to each Excess Curtailed Buyer by each Buyer that experienced
lesser capacity curtailment. The affected Buyers shall be responsible for
resolution of any and all resulting compensation claims between themselves.
(c) The Buyer that experienced lesser curtailment shall pay to the Excess Curtailed
Buyer, damages in an amount equal to the one hundred percent (100%) load factor
equivalent of the reservation charges applicable to the curtailed transportation
capacity multiplied by the difference between (a) the Excess Curtailed Buyer's
pro rata capacity curtailment quantity determined under Section 28.4 above and
(b) the capacity curtailment quantity determined pursuant to this Section 28.
Such payment shall in no way limit the right of Excess Curtailed Buyers to seek
further damages in another forum from Buyers that experienced lesser curtailment
due to the grant of priority relief pursuant to this Section 28.
